    KENTUCKY WEATHER. It still can’t make up its mind on what we should have. Technically we still are in winter. Tuesday morning it was raining and lightning. Can there still be a chance of snow? Maybe.

    TIME CHANGE. Daylight savings time will begin March 10. That means moving our clocks up 1 hour at 2 a.m. or as most people do, before going to bed.

    As a child I was a huge fan of “The Wizard of Oz,” watching it every time it was on TV. Let’s face it; I’m still a big fan. I also adored Broadway’s “Wicked,” the stage version that serves as a prequel to the original.

  • “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” for March is a fairly new member of the Hardin County community.

    She is a member of the Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown and at our February meeting, she suggested to me a column topic: Warm Blessings Soup Kitchen, a charity in which she is actively involved. The more I talked to her, and especially after visiting her at the site, I realized she is one outstanding cook.

    She is the Rev. Ellen Morell, priest at Christ Episcopal Church in Elizabethtown.
